Right.  That's the only solution for now.  The patch you cited (which should
eventually be promoted to the 3.1.0dev code) does allow differentiation of
ro/rw based on user, but some kind of user/group login is required (e.g.
password-less anonymous access won't ever succeed for a module that has auth

One thing that can help out with the configuration of multiple modules is
available if you're using the 3.1.0dev (git) release, you can use a "&merge
file" directive to read the common settings from one place:

    &merge /some/foobar.conf
    read only = yes
    &merge /some/foobar.conf
    read only = no
    auth users = joe sam jane

You'd put the "path = /whatever" (etc.) settings in the foobar.conf file.
